The HiBook News: Edition Number 990 Or Thereabouts…This Episode: Not A Whole Lot To Report Except…

By Tim

Wow, the title left ya’all hanging didn’t it? Yeah, there really isn’t anything new on the tablet server front since it is still sitting on a large scale shared hosting platform until I can get my cable connected.

However I can still report that the old Chuwi HiBook is still the best overall portable device I own due to its size, speed and usefulness along with decent battery life.  The faster RAM after a BIOS tweak really does make it quite a bit snappier than the Hi12, which of course still has the far superior display and of course that huge 11600 mAh battery, but lots of little annoying glitches, such as not being able to tweak the BIOS!

Both of these devices are still available. Although for the most part you can only find the HiBook Pro  with a super hi-res 2560 x 1600 screen and larger battery, both of which are a bonus! The HiBook Pro is a steal right now at $182!

Lately though I am thinking that once I get cable back online I might just opt for a 7-8 inch super cheap tablet with Windows 10 and see what I can do with it as a server.  I think I have done all I can with the current smaller 10.1 inch HiBook to prove it’s value.

So that is all the news I have for today except for the fact that it is too damned cold outside here! But that will be gone by tomorrow and the world will be right again.

That is all,

Tim

Microsoft Surface Pro With LTE Advanced Now Up for Purchase for Business Users

By Radu Iorga

Microsoft has just decided to make available to business customers the LTE Advanced version of the Surface Pro. The product was already announced back in October and it’s only now shipping to select clients in select markets.

The 12 inch slate is actually the third Surface unit to come with this feature, following the Surface 2 and the 2015 Surface 3. The device relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 Category 9 modem, which supports 20 cellular bands and offers speeds up to 450 Mbps. In order to use LTE you can opt for an embedded SIM and choose a data plan from the Windows Store or insert a nano SIM card next to the microSD.

Microsoft hasn’t made available the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced on its online store yet, but business customers can get it from partners, such as Insight. The basic, core version comes with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage, priced at $1149. Double the RAM and SSD will take you up to $1449. You can see in the image below the Surface Pro with LTE Advanced, featuring an embedded SIM and a nano SIM tray.

You can get the device here, with Core i5, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage.

Samsung Galaxy Book Convertible Tablets Launched in Japan, With Stylus Included

By Radu Iorga

Although it’s been a while since Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Book devices, it’s only now that they’re entering the Japanese market. I’m talking about the Galaxy Book 10.6 incher and Galaxy Book 12 incher here, which should be available with Windows 10 on board come mid November.

These are actually the first Windows-based tablets from Samsung to be released in Japan. The Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 will be available for corporate customers, via Sinex Infotech and Daiwabo Information System, while Galaxy Book 12.0 will only be sold via Costco. Both models can be used as a slate or as laptop PC with styli in the mix. Samsung bundles an S-Pen with each of these devices and it can be used to jot down handwritten notes or draw.

There’s also a function called Samsung Flow, which lets you connect the slates with a Galaxy smartphone. Users will also be able to log into a PC using the phone’s iris scanner and fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 packs an Intel Core m3 processor of the seventh generation, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, while the OS of choice is Windows 10 Pro.

 

The screen is a 10.6 incher with a TFT LCD panel and a Full HD resolution. It also has a 5 megapixel front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1,GPS and Glonass. USB Type-C connectivity is also in the mix and a 30.4 W battery takes care of the daily needs. The bigger model packs an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of eMMC storage. It opts for Windows 10 Home and uses a 12 inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display, as well as a 13 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter.

This one has a 30.4 W battery and weighs about 754 grams. No prices have been announced yet.

Samsung Galaxy Book Now Up for Preorder in UK; Prices Start at $836

By Radu Iorga

Samsung launched its Galaxy Book devices at MWC 2017, but it’s only now they’re hitting Europe. This is a Windows 10 tablet meant for professionals and it comes in two versions: 10.6 inch and 12 inch. And now it has gone on preorder in UK, with the starting price of $836.

That’s quite the hike from the $640 starting sum you had for the 10.6 inch unit in USA. The Galaxy Book packs a 10.6 inch TFT LCD screen, or a 12 inch Super AMOLED panel in the bigger version. In UK you can pay $836 for the 10.6 inch and you can go up to $1635 for the 12 inch device. Slates offer a Full HD or Quad HD resolution and the chipsets are a 7th gen Intel Core m3 or a 7th gen Intel Core i5 CPU.

Both have support for LTE Category 6 and the 12 inch unit has support for HDR, so you can consume Netflix video with this standard. The 10.6 inch model comes with 4 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of eMMC storage, while the larger product has 4 GB of RAM/ 128 GB SSD or 8 GB of RAM/ 256 GB of SSD. These Windows 10 machines come with full Microsoft Office and S Pen support.

The waistlines are quite slim here, at 7.4 mm for the 10.6 incher and 8.9 mm for the 12 inch AMOLED unit. A 10.5 hour battery life was promised for the bigger unit, as well as fast charge. In spite of having Windows 10 here, Samsung’s Air Command from Galaxy Note Android devices is here. UK availability starts on June 16th. I have to say I’m pretty shocked by the price difference of about $200 between the US and UK version.
